    This is all most a "trick" question. I do not have long hair for spiritual/religious reasons. I have UNCUT hair for those reasons, or should I say biblical reasons. And because my hair is uncut, it is long. Yep, I don't mean to umm...disrespect your question, actually, I find it intresting, because a know a lot of religious organizations, where women do not cut their hair, or at least keep it long. I haven't cut or trimmed my hair since Sept. 2002. so now it has gotten long, but I cut it a month or two, before I got back into the church.

    Yeah, I'm Apostolic Pentecostal too, and if you want to know more, ask away! Hopefully I can anwser your questions, if not, I will find someone who can.

    I wondered if a few people here did have longer hair because of their beliefs, that's interesting.

    Long hair is natural...

    Therefore it comes from God!

    I grow my hair because I believe it belongs to someone I love - and I am searching for that significant one...

    So I grow it because of love and because it is gift that came from God itself...

    I concider myself religious person, but I don't think I can be labeled as member of any specific church...

    There is much 'religion' in long hair, as there are anthropological and evolutionary reasons that we have ability to grow hair...

    So answer is yes - no matter what you consider 'religion'!

    I'm sorry, but that just made me laugh completely out loud. [/hijack]

    As for me, I'm not growing my hair for any other reasons beyond that I like it and that it feels right...and my own personal vanity I suppose. xD

    I started growing my hair as acceptance of myself and my hair texture...for the freedom to just be! I feel that my long hair is a visual representation of my freedom from the confines of societal norms and in natural beauty. That is spiritual!

    Sorry, I don't know how to edit my posts. I meant that's as close to religion as it gets for me.

    No, it's not. I'm growing mine out simply because I've always prefered the look of long hair to short hair. It might be cultural influence - I'm half Indian, and many Indians have long hair.

    No day but today.

    Definitely for reasons of faith.
    I grow mine as an outward sign (to myself mostly) of inner consecration to the Lord Jesus Christ. For some of us who allow our hair to grow by faith, we are strict about their hair being "uncut" (no trimming unless for unusual circumstance) but for me I'm happy to give it a trim when the ends are looking ragged.
    I also love long hair and sincerely believe it is given to us as a sort of gift.. our glory...

    No, I grow my hair because I like it that way and I trim it when I feel like it
